Author Info
Stephen E. Ambrose Jr.
Stephen E. Ambrose grew up in Wisconsin. He earned his Ph.D. in history from the Univeristy of Wisconsin, and taught history at several American colleges and universities. He was a prolific, and best-selling, popular historian, best-known for his books on World War II. Dwight Eisenhower personally asked Ambrose to edit his papers, and Ambrose wrote a highly-regarded two-volume biography of Ike. In addition to his books on war and soldiers, Ambrose wrote a bestseller, UNDAUNTED COURAGE, on the Lewis & Clarke expedition, and served as a commentator for a Ken Burns documentary on the two explorers. His book on the transcontinental railroad. He was an advisor on the 1998 film SAVING PRIVATE RYAN. Ambrose made news in 2001 when he acknowledged that some language in his book THE WILD BLUE was similar to phrasing in another book, WINGS OF THE MORNING, by Thomas Childers. He did not admit to plagiarizing, but acknowledged that the attributions in his book needed correcting. Ambrose reportedly earned millions through his publisher Simon & Schuster, and he was generous in supporting historical causes. He helped found the National D-Day Museum in New Orleans and was director emeritus of the Eisenhower Center at the University of New Orleans. His book COMRADES: BROTHERS, FATHERS, HEROES, SONS, PALS, in which he writes on relationships, both his won and those of famous figures, is perhaps his most personally revealing work.
